On your way into the Anzac Museum turn left at the first roundabout and drive up to the car park. There are many steps to walk to the top but the effort is worth it. There is a road to the top if you can't...More

This is worth a relaxing walk and visit. Learn all the history as you walk up to the lookout, and then relate the plan to the view you see. A wonderful lookout.
